Many years ago I had a 10 gallon tank but gave it, fish and all, to a friend when I moved across the country. (I'm now in Maine.)

I am, at long last, able to start up this hobby. I now have a 40 gallon freshwater tank, (up since September 9, 2011), and am finally to the point of adding fish.

Right now I have 4 glofish danios and 3 pandy platys as well as one pleco. (The small kind.) Oh and a snail that came in on one of the plants.

It's also my first time ever doing a planted tank. I have about 10 plants now, a piece of driftwood and some decorations.

Things will probably change in the future.

I am also slowly adding in more fish.

I am now thinking I want to have sand as my substrate instead of the black gravel...if I can find a dark sand to use.

Anyway, I'm doing much more with the aquarium this time around, reading a lot more, working a lot more on it, and I think I'm getting addicted. I thought, innocently, that I was just going to get a tank, cycle it, get some fish, some decorations and be done with it.

Now I'm all immersed in this whole aquarium world. There's a LOT I do not know, (especially with the plants but whatever I'm doing it's working), and am learning as I go but it is definitely so much more fun this time around.

Anyway, thanks for having me.
